The Suzanne Dellal Centre initiates and hosts world-class dance productions and engaging educational activities and facilitates the highest-quality presentation of dance. The Centre has launched dozens of innovative programs to nurture and support new work and emerging artists, providing platforms to expose young artists and bring dance to new audiences.
The Suzanne Dellal Centre’s sprawling multi-level campus consists of four performance halls, rehearsal studios, restaurant and cafe, and wide plazas that host outdoor performances and events. The Centre is home to the Batsheva Dance Company and Inbal Dance Theatre. From 2016-2018, the Centre is undergoing a historic renovation in order to provide more spaces for dance.
In 2010 the Suzanne Dellal Centre was awarded the Israel Prize, the country’s most prestigious prize and highest honor. Since its founding, the Centre has been responsible for putting Israeli dance on the map, internationally, and positioning dance as a central part of Israeli culture, locally. The Centre has served as a springboard for many Israeli choreographers and festivals. With over 600 performances each year, the Centre has initiated more than 100 creative frameworks and presented over 1,300 premieres. It is the most visited tourist site in Tel Aviv, with over half a million visitors a year.
Today, as the dance ecosystem of Israel continues to grow and flourish, the Suzanne Dellal Centre remains an anchor of the scene, presenting and producing hundreds of performances each year and hosting festivals and programs which offer opportunities for dance artists in all stages of development.
